DotNetNuke 5.6 is Now Available

Today marks the release of DotNetNuke 5.6. Version 5.6 of the Professional Edition and Enterprise Edition includes the new DotNetNuke Site Search, which enables more effective web site content search, and Enhanced Google Analytics Support, which provides greater performance and control over the monitoring of web site traffic. It also includes significant enhancements to Content Approval Workflows, which extends the ability of organizations to control changes to their web site content. In addition, a new perpetual license option is now available in addition to the existing annual subscription license.

The new Site Search engine includes rich query syntax with support for Boolean searches, phrase searches, relevance searches, wild cards, fuzzy searches, and groupings. Based on Lucene, the system includes a true web spider that is capable of indexing any site, whether it is built on DotNetNuke or not.

The Enhanced Analytics Support allows users to take full advantage of Google Analytics. The system has been upgraded to the latest integration best practices from Google and now enables tracking of sub-domains as a single entity as well as the use of up to five segmentation rules per page.

Managers can now configure Content Approval Workflows in a top down hierarchy at the site, page, and module level. In addition, content locking improves efficiency and reduces the chance of workflow conflicts.

DotNetNuke Corp. now offers a perpetual license option for existing Professional and Enterprise Editions subscription customers. DotNetNuke Corp. subscription customers may purchase a perpetual license to use the DotNetNuke Professional or Enterprise Edition version they are running on their production servers. The perpetual licensing provides the right to use the commercial editions of the DotNetNuke software indefinitely.

The DotNetNuke Community Edition 5.6 includes new features such as:

  • An enhanced indexing capability which allows the standard core search feature to index page names, tag attributes and other metadata for improved search results
  • Optimizations to the database architecture and handling of web analytics tracking codes which will result in faster performance for all Editions of the product
